To all members of Highland AMVETS Post #44,

First off and most importantly, due to the current situation happening across our nation, I feel it prudent to suspend our scheduled meeting for March. I have conferred with Chris Sapp (Post #44 JAG) and we feel that this is the most responsible action for this unprecedented time. I do understand that we have officer nominations for next year to think about and for the time being, if you have someone you would like to nominate, please respond to this email or text me at (931) 261-1042 and I will make a master list and publish it on our Facebook Page (Amvets Post 44 Cookeville) and website (www.amvetspost44.com/). If any business that needs to be handled right away, the post Executive Board will have authority to make the decision they feel will be best for the post and ANY action taken will be presented to the membership at large ASAP.

Secondly, the meal service that was coordinated by Chaplain Murphy on 19 March 2020 has been cancelled. The group we were going to be serving has decided to leave the area earlier than planned. I appreciate all the feedback that I received about this effort, and look forward to trying to do something for the disaster relief volunteers at a later date.

Lastly, if you have been or know of other AMVETS who have been volunteering with the county, or one of the other volunteer groups please let me know.

As of right now, 17 March 2020, our next scheduled meeting will take place 27 April 2020 at 1800 hours.

Thank you,

James Bishop
